12:19 pm
them. >> charge up the phone. yes. dealing with the nor'easter, it is a nor'easter. thankfully though it is a warm air nor'easter, if you can take away one piece of good news, from this wet their we're dealing with, that's been so impact full, so far today, across the delaware vale, getting live look at the neighborhood network cam, margate, that's angry looking sea and angry looking scene altogether. we are dealing with the impact from this nor'easter, and we're seeing these very intense winds speeds, 95 corridor, south jersey, and specially along the coastline, current winds, sustained winds, right now, also causing a problem, with the power outages, because we just have the strong winds that are persisting, and not letting up, upward of 30 miles per hour along the i95 corridor. upward of 40 miles per hour along the coast, then we have the strong wind gusts on top of that. even higher gusts, 45, right now, in center city philadelphia, gusting up into the 50's at our shore point, and that's going to continue into the next couple of hours. really this is the most active time frame of this nor'easter that we're in right now.
12:20 pm
over the next several hours, as we get into the afternoon and early evening hours, you see model projections, wind gusts up 60 miles per hour for parts of south jersey and along the coastline, upward of 45 to 50 miles per hour for the second half of the day today. in and along the i95 corridor. still quite windy headed into the evening hours, not going to see those super intense wind gusts as we head into the second half of the evening. then still windy overnight tonight. windy day tomorrow. but likely the winds are not going to cause the type of damage that we're seeing across the area today, as we head into the day tomorrow. and then, finally, as we head into wednesday, little bit after breeze. much, much quieter. definitely, it is not going to be the case as we head into this afternoon and evening, as i mentioned, strong wind gusts, periods of rain, see the rainfall start to pick up now, even potential embedded thunderstorm headed into the evening hours, rainfall totals will be significant on about one to 2 inches of rainfall. of course, along the coast, where we're seeing the most
12:21 pm
significant impact from this storm system. high tied to occur, but between four to 5:00 p.m. we will continue to see the wind gusts to 60-mile per hour, more and more pour outages, more road closures due to moderate coastal flooding, heavy rainfall, one to 3 inches headed into tonight through the end of this event. and significant beach errosion, is likely, as we head throughout the day. storm scan3, showing us we're dealing with winds, coastal flooding and more rainfall on top of. that will the rain looking much more uniform, especially over the last couple of frames here. and that will continue to fill in, and the rainfall intensity will continue to fill or continue to increase as we see this moisture building in from off the coastline. so future weather showing us as we head into the afternoon and early evening hours, it will be a tough commute. rain continuing to come down. but then, as we head into tuesday, we will see some areas of rainfall in the morning, then things will start to winds down into tomorrow afternoon. but there is a concern, for accumulating ice, especially in the higher elevations, up toward the poconos, carbon,
12:22 pm
monroe counties, really not great time to get on the roadways specially later today. rainfall totals as i mention could be upward of an inch, 2 inches, maybe even pushing 3 inches locally by the ends of this event. most of the rain will have come down by midday tomorrow. so for today, strong gusty winds, periods of rain, temperatures only in the 40's, rain, and wind continues tonight with the chance of an isolated storm. and then on tuesday, we will deal with some morning rain, then things quieting down still windy, but again, not those intense wind gust that is we will see throughout the day tomorrow. then check that out. this storm will be history by wednesday. sunshine, 53. >> nice rebounds there. >> yes. >> thank you, lauren, appreciate it. >> also, more on the severe weather pounding the shore line. what is happening along long beach island. stay

12:24 pm
12:25 pm
>> welcome back, coming up, frightening armed video, storm into a bucks county convenience store, guns drawn, exactly where it happened, how police think you can help. >> and we continue to monitor the northeastern that's pounding the shore at this hour, take a look, this eyewitness video comes to us from long beach island, where beach errosion, very real concern, so is coastal flooding, heavy rains, pounding the shore for hours, and power outages are also possible. >> final check on the forecast, lauren? >> we have the coastal flood warnings, and advisories in effect through this evening until 11:00 p.m. so that's going to be big concern over the next several hours. in and around philadelphia, surrounding counties, this afternoon and evening, rain, becoming heavier at times,
12:26 pm
even embedded thunderstorm, winds will continue at 20-30 miles per hour sustained, gusts to 45 to 60 miles per hour will likely continue to see increasing numbers of power outages, at the coast, heavy rainfall is likely one to 3 inches through the end of this event. high wind warning remains in effect along our shore points, we could see wind gusts up toward six a miles per hour. and will likely crib to more report of downed trees, power outages, and that potential for moderate coastal flooding, really if you stay home, it will be the best thing to do with these strong winds, and that potential for over washed roadways specially along the coast. >> projectiles, put them in the garage. >> thank you so much, lauren. hold ton your hats, "eyewitness news" at noon, i'm jim donovan. >> i'm rahel solomon. for lauren, august of us here, thank for watching. >> "eyewitness news" continues at 5:00. we're always on line at >> and the yup is next. and the young and the restless is next.
